Paoli Hospital’s new ‘Yellow Dot’ Alert Program

    Paoli Hospital has set in motion a new program that is the first of its kind in the region to help first responders obtain vital information about victims of car accidents at the scene of the accident, as reported by Patch.

    The Yellow Dot program alerts first responders to find medical records about a driver in a car’s glove compartment. Emergency crews will know to search for a yellow folder with recent photographs and medical history of the car’s driver and frequent passengers with the help of a yellow sticker found on the driver’s side of the car.

    These folders will not have any financial or insurance information.

    Paoli Hospital provides free Yellow Dot Program packets for those who are interested.
